Words

I match make a few letters

Butter them with emotions

Soft,calm,soothing ink

Penning down feelings with mystique

Then I watch their hearts melt

Succumbing to love, through words.


Black,dark,grey...night.

Blood,red,thick...bleed

I Cris cross the letters

Hunt their sanity ghastly

Murder them with scary letters

A concoction of fear filled words

WORDSss - Words

Late,dead,graves... Shush!

Horror won't seem so cool

I prey on their dreams

Rule their nightmares

Keeping their souls awake

Yet their eyes dead

I scare the hell out of them,using words.

So, sit, relax, fasten your seat belts and read

I took my words to a bar

One shot, two shots, three shots... Four

They got drunk, crazy dipsomaniacs

So my letters are unstable

Now, these words are drunk and unpredictable.



Cheers
